I received the following message, fliers and images in my inbox from Beirut Lemons:
CNN is printing stories from people in the Middle East. Send your thoughts on what’s happening. The world needs to know that even if they pretend not to hear us, our voices are far louder than the bombings and the terror!
Our people are dying for God’s Sake!
In the South, it is a systematic annihilation village by village.
I also received this from Cold Desert:
It is with a very heavy heart that I send you this plea. As much doubt as many of you might have about the point of signing petitions, at times like these, when there doesn’t seem to be much we can do, participating in a peaceful protest I believe is better than nothing. I invite you to go to http://julywar.epetitions.net and sign the Save the Lebanese Civilians Petition and forward this invitation to your friends.
The petition does not go into the “who started it debate”. I won’t either since I think at this stage it does not matter: just think, what would a parent tell the sronger child when it’s hitting the weaker one, justifying the act by saying the latter “started it”…
Sign and Forward “Save the Lebanese Civilians Petition”
